essary to acquire by purchase or by condemnation for Ur- 
ban Renewal purposes the fee simple interest or any lesser 
interest in and to properties in areas designated for reha- 
bilitation and not already listed in Section 2 of this Ordi- 
nance, as may be deemed necessary and proper by the 
Commissioner of the Department of Housing and Commu- 
nity Development to effect the proper implementation of 
the project. This may include : 

(a) Any property in areas designated for rehabilita- 
tion containing a nonsalvable structure, i.e., a structure 
which in the opinion of the Commissioner of the Depart- 
ment of Housing and Community Development cannot be 
economically rehabilitated. 



72 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 33 

(b) Any property, the owner of which is unable or un- 
willing to comply or conform to the property rehabilitation 
standards set forth in Section 6 of this Ordinance within 
12 months from the date of written notice of the required 
improvements, the Department of Housing and Community 
Development, after due consideration that the property 
owner has failed to achieve substantial conformity with 
the property rehabilitation standards, may acquire such 
property pursuant to the Eminent Domain Law of this 
State as if the property has originally been planned for 
acquisition after 90 days written notice to the owner. The 
Department of Housing and Community Development re- 
serves the right to acquire any such non-complying prop- 
erty for a period of two (2) years from the date of said 
written 90 days notice by the Department of Housing and 
Community Development.

essary to acquire by purchase or by condemnation for Ur- 
ban Renewal purposes the fee simple interest, or any lesser

tions thereof in the Reservoir Hill Project not designated 
for acquisition, in addition to those properties enumerated 
in Sections 2 and 3 of this ordinance, in order to carry out 
rehabilitation by the Department of Housing and Commu- 
nity Development because : 

(a) It is necessary to make residential structures avail- 
able for use of low or moderate-income families. 

(b) Rehabilitation on a structure-by-structure basis is 
infeasible, and assemblage of a gi'oup of properties is re- 
quired to carry out the objectives set forth in the Renewal 
Plan ; and 

(c) Rehabilitation of individual, scattered properties is 
necessary in order to remove blighting influence from 
otherwise sound residential blocks. 

Sec. 5. And he it further ordained. That upon acquisi- 
tion of the properties mentioned in Sections 3 and 4 of this 
Ordinance, the Department of Housing and Community De- 
velopment will either:

codes and ordinances of Baltimore City and the rehabilita- 



ORDINANCES 73

dispose of property at its fair value in accordance with 
applicable regulations. If sale cannot be consummated by 
the time rehabilitation is accomplished, units shall be 
rented pending continuing sale efforts; or 

(b) Sell or lease the property at its fair value subject 
to rehabilitation in conformance with the codes and ordi- 
nances of Baltimore City and the rehabilitation standards 
and objectives set forth in this Plan ; or 

(c) Demolish the structure or structures thereon and 
dispose of land for redevelopment at its fair value for uses 
in accordance with this Plan. 

Sec. 6. And be it further ordained, That in addition to 
the standards found in the various codes, ordinances, and

dential properties designated for rehabilitation within the 
project area :

mize the effect of conditions conducive to decay and deteri- 
oration of the structure. Exterior ventilation openings 
shall be effectively screened where needed.

at least three separate duplex convenience electrical outlets. 

(h) Exterior doors shall have proper hardware, includ- 
ing workable locks. 

(i) Access to each dwelling unit shall be provided

a. Declaration of policy. 

Scenes of violence and disorder have recently been oc- 
curring with increasing frequency in the Baltimore City 
Schools. There have been four shooting incidents near the 
schools, one of which was fatal. The situation has become 
so grave that the security and safety of the students and 
teachers in the public schools is menaced. 

The City is given the power by Section 30 of Article ii 
of the Baltimore City Charter (1964 Edition) to establish, 
maintain and control a system of free public schools. The 
schools are owned by the City for the benefit of all its 
citizens. The various lockers, closets and desks within the

school buildings belong to the City. Temporary permission 
to use them is granted to the students and teachers with 
the understanding that the school authorities retain the 
right of inspection for the benefit of the safety and security 
of all. No one has the right to use any part of school 
property for the storage of dangerous or harmful articles 
whose possession is prohibited or strictly regulated by law. 

The Mayor and City Council hereby finds that, in order 
to protect the physical well-being of the occupants of the 
City public schools and to maintain the peace, health and 
welfare of all our citizens, the Superintendent of Schools, 
or his agents or employees, should be authorized to inspect 
all lockers, closets and desks in the schools at all times.

such substance was obtained directly or pursuant to a valid 
prescription or order from a physician while acting in the 
course of his professional practice.

No. 52 
(Council No. 99) 

An Ordinance to repeal and reordain with amendments 
Sections 8 and 10(3) of Article 4 of the Baltimore City 
Code (1966 Edition), title ''Community Relations,*' sub- 
title "Community Relations Commission," as amended 
by Ordinance 1160, approved November 1, 1971, and 
to add new Sections 9 (6a) and 17(d) to said article, 
title and subtitle of said Code, defining age discrimina- 
tion and adding age discrimination to unlawful employ- 
ment practices. 

Section 1. Be it ordained by the Mayor and City Coun- 
cil of Baltimore, That Sections 8 and 10 (3) of Article 4 
of the Baltimore City Code (1966 Edition), title "Com- 
munity Relations," subtitle "Community Relations Com- 
mission," as amended by Ordinance 1160, approved No- 
vember 1, 1971, be and they are hereby repealed and re- 
ordained with amendments, and that new Sections 9 (6a) 



146 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 52 

and 17(d) be and they are hereby added to said Article 4 
of the Baltimore City Code, title "Community Relations/' 
subtitle ^'Community Relations Commission," all to read 
as follows : 

8. Declaration of policy and findings of fact. 

The Mayor and City Council of Baltimore find that : 

The population of Baltimore is composed of persons 
having differing racial, religious and ethnic backgrounds. 

Discrimination in the fields of education and preliminary 
job training and other prevailing conditions and causes 
have precluded members of minority CERTAIN ETHNIC, 
SEX OR AGE groups from acquiring, developing, and 
maintaining essential educational, vocational, cultural, and 
professional background and efficiency for entrance into, 
and the earning of a livelihood in many fields of endeavor. 
Members of these groups who are qualified are not given 
fair, equal and impartial employment opportunities. Such 
prevention from earning an income necessary to maintain 
normal and decent living standards has retarded commu- 
nity progress and increased public relief rolls. 

Discrimination in health and welfare services imposes 
unnecessary individual and community hardships and 
has actually resulted in denial to members of such i»ffi ority 
groups of care, attention and service essential to mainte- 
nance of their physical and emotional well-being. 

The practice by places of public accommodations, resort 
or amusement of refusing to accommodate and serve mem- 
bers of minority groups tends to impose hardship upon 
the members of these groups and also tends to cause and 
intensify inter-group tension. 

Discrimination against women in the fields of educa- 
tion, preliminary job training, health and welfare services 
and employment opportunities, and the refusal of service 
in places of public accommodations, resort or amusement 
imposes a social hardship upon women and penalizes the 
society in that women cannot make maximum use of their 
skills and abilities to enrich the world around them. 

''Arbitrary age discrimination in employment prevents 
many of our citizens from working at jobs for which 



ORDINANCES 147 

they are qualified and forces others who are willing and 
able to ivork into involuntary retirement. These workers 
are denied the opportunity of working in their chosen fields 
and are often forced to accept support from society through 
unemployment insurance and relief payments." 

Legislation is necessary in the public interest to avoid 
permanently adverse efforts upon the development, growth 
and renewal of the City of Baltimore. 

Therefore, the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore 
deem it necessary and expedient to promote and protect 
the public welfare by enacting this subtitle to prevent and 
eliminate discrimination by the persons and in the areas 
herein defined.

Whereas, high levels of unnecessary noise harm the citi- 
zens of Baltimore by intruding into the privacy of their 
homes, by harassing them in their use of public places 
such as streets and parks, by reducing efficiency and pro- 
ductivity in their places of work and business, by costing 
them the very value of their property, and by causing 
physical damage and hearing loss ; now therefore

timore Harbor Outer Crossing" or the ''Project"; and 

Whereas, the Commission has issued Revenue Bonds to 
finance the cost of the Baltimore Plarbor Outer Crossing and 
Approaches as part of the Bond Issue covering additional 
bay crossings and a connection from 1-95 to the existing Bal- 
timore Harbor Tunnel ; and

may interfere with the construction and maintenance of the 
Project and it will or may be necessary that portions of said 
Facilities be altered, reconstructed, relocated or removed, in 
order to avoid such interferences ; and 

Whereas, the Administration requires the City's right, 
title and interest in certain easements, riparian rights and 
other property owned by the City and needed in connection 
with the construction and maintenance of the Project, as 
shown on Exhibit A ; and 

Whereas, the City has plans for new Facilities at Curtis 
Creek, Hawkins Point Road, Magazine Road and the Cross 
Harbor Water Main, and has initiated ordinances to ac- 
quire the rights of way ; and 

Whereas, the parties herein desire to cooperate each with 
the otlier, in tlie public interest and for mutual benefit 
of their respective construction programs ; and 

Whereas, the parties herein desire to enter into this 
Agreement in order to state more effectually their respec-

STATEMENT 

Section 211G-1 of Article 89B of the Annotated Code 
of Maryland as amended to date (hereinafter referred to 
as the "Code") authorizes the Department to issue its 
bonds on behalf of the Maj^or and City Council of Balti- 
more and the several counties of the State in order to 
accelerate programs of construction and reconstruction, to 
provide local participating funds for federally aided high- 
way projects, and to make major road repairs necessary 
to eliminate damage caused by severe and unforeseen 
weather conditions, such bonds to be issued from time to 
time, subject to limitations set forth in Section 211G-1. 
Section 211G-1 provides that the bonds shall be obligations 
of the Department, shall be issued substantially in accord- 
ance with the provisions of Sections 21 IB and 211 D of 
Article 89B, and shall be payable, as to principal and inter- 
est; from a separate sinking fund to be established for 
each series of bonds by making deductions in each year 
from Highway User Revenues (as defined in Section 38 A 
(b) of Article 89B) allocated in accordance with Section 
38A of Article 89B to each Participant. 

In order to assure compliance with Section 211G-1, the 
Department prepared and distributed to the Mayor and 
City Council of Baltimore and the several counties of the 
State information concerning participation in the proceeds 
of the bonds authorized by Section 211G-1. Thereafter the

Participant submitted to the Department a request to 
participate in the Second Issue, Third Series of the bonds 
contemplated for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1972, 
to the extent of Forty Million Dollars ($40,000,000). Pur- 
suant to Section 211G-1, the Department approved the 
Participant's request. 

Accordingly, this Agreement is entered into for the pur- 
pose of securing the payment of the Participant's share 
of the principal of and interest on the Second Issue, Third 
Series, of the bonds to be issued by the Department in 
the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1972, in the event the 
bonds are issued.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS 

In consideration of the mutual covenants herein and 
;V in accordance with applicable law, the parties agree as 

l'« follows: 

ti 

1. Issue of Bonds. During the fiscal year beginning 

|». July 1, 1972, the Department will offer at public sale the 

[jj Second Issue, Third Series of its bonds authorized by 

V Section 211G-1 of Article 89B of the Code, to be known 

I as "Department of Transportation — County Highway Con- 

11 , struction Bonds — Second Issue, Third Series," (hereinafter 

'••I referred to as the "Bonds") in an aggregate principal 

J ' ; amount equal to the approved portion of the total requests 

'' received by the Department for participation in the pro- 

ceeds of the Bonds, provided that the aggregate principal 
amount of the Bonds may be reduced by the Department 
in the event and to the extent that the Mayor and City 
Council of Baltimore and/or any of the counties making 
requests shall not have entered into an agreement with 
the Department substantially identical to this Agreement. 

The Bonds shall be dated as of a date within thirty 
(30) days from the date of sale, shall bear interest pay- 
able semi-annually accounting from the date of the Bonds, 
shall mature within fifteen (15) years and be payable in 
consecutive annual serial installments, shall bear interest 
at the rate or rates named by the successful bidder for 
the Bonds and accepted by the head of the Department 
and shall be subject to prior redemption by the Depart- 



ORDINANCES 449 

ment at prices specified by it prior to issuance thereof and 
subject to the provisions of this Agreement. 

The obligation of the Department hereunder to issue 
any of the Bonds is subject to its absolute discretion to 
determine when and under what conditions the Bonds 
shall be issued, the form and contents thereof and of any 
official statement issued with respect thereto, and to accept 
or reject any or all bids received therefor, it being the 
purpose of this reservation that this Agreement is at all 
times subject to the paramount need for preserving the 
credit of the Department and the security of Highway 
User Revenues. 

2. Distribution of Proceeds. In the event the Bonds 
are issued, then promptly after settlement therefor and 
delivery thereof, the Department will cause the proceeds 
to be applied as follows : 

(a) there shall first be deducted from the proceeds all 
monies received from the purchaser of the Bonds on ac- 
count of accrued interest and premium, if any, which shall 
be credited to the Sinking Fund hereinafter provided for; 

(b) from the remainder there shall be paid all ex- 
penses incurred by the Department in the issuance and i 
sale of the Bonds, including, but not limited to, expenses ;; 
of printing, advertising, delivery, and financial and legal J 

fees : * 

■ 

(c) the balance of the proceeds shall be divided in the 
same proportion that the approved request of the Par- 
ticipant bears to the total aggregate issue of the Bonds 
and the proportionate share shall be remitted to the fiscal 
officer of the Participant, hereinafter designated, or the 
Department will cause such proportionate share to be ap- 
plied on account of expenditures for construction, recon- 
struction, local participation in federally aided highway 
projects and certain major repairs of the highways of the 
Participant, as directed by appropriate written resolution 
of the Participant filed with the Department prior to the 
distribution of the proceeds. 

3. Sinking Fund. The Department will establish on its 
books a separate account designated "County Highway 
Construction Bonds — Second Issue, Third Series Sinking 



450 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 125 

Fund" to which will be credited the accrued interest and 
premium received upon settlement for the Bonds. The 
Department will cause the Comptroller of the State of 
Maryland to credit to the Sinking Fund the amounts with- 
held by him from distribution to the Participant as pro- 
vided below. 

In the event the Bonds are issued, the Comptroller shall 
withhold from Highway User Revenues allocated to, or 
held for the credit of the Participant under Section 38A of 
Article 89B, after providing for sinking fund requirements 
for County Highway Construction Bonds issued prior to 
1968, and for previous series of County Highway Con- 
struction Bonds — Second Issue, an amount equal to the 
Participant's share of the principal and interest payable 
on the Bonds in the fiscal year in which they are issued 
and in the next succeeding fiscal year. All funds so al- 
located to, or held for the credit of the Participant shall 
be so applied until the Participant's share of debt service 
on account of the Bonds outstanding for the then current 
and the next succeeding fiscal year shall have been ac- 
cumulated. After the Participant's share of debt service 
shall have been so accumulated in the fiscal year in which 
the Bonds are issued (or if necessary, in the fiscal year 
or years following), then in each fiscal year thereafter 
(or in the discretion of the Department, in the six-month 
period immediately preceding the beginning thereof) the 
Comptroller shall withhold from the funds allocated to or 
held for the credit of the Participant, an amount as may be 
necessary to maintain in the Sinking Fund (exclusive of 
interest and increment, if any, on investments) an amount 
equal to its share of principal and interest paj^ments due 
in the current and next succeeding fiscal year. The amount 
to be withheld by the Comptroller in the fiscal year in 
which the Bonds are issued shall be reduced by an amount 
equal to the Participant's proportionate share of accrued 
interest and premium, if any, paid by the purchaser of the 
bonds. 

Withholdings, for each fiscal year authorized by the 
Participant under agreements entered into pursuant to 
Section 211G-1, shall be prorated among the sinking funds 
for the several series of Department of Transportation — 
County Highway Construction Bonds — Second Issue in 



ORDINANCES 431 

which the Participant participates, in the proportion that 
debt service for each fiscal year under each agreement bears 
to total debt service for such year under all agreements. 

In the event the Participant shall elect to pay its share 
of principal and interest from the proceeds of taxes to be 
levied by it directly, the Participant shall notify the Comp- 
troller, in writing, not later than the first day of January 
in the calendar year in which the Participant proposes to 
make such payments and, upon receipt of such notice, the 
Comptroller shall not withhold in accordance with Section 
3 hereof any of the Highway User Revenues allocated to 
or held for the credit of the Participant after the first day 
of July in such year, unless and until the Comptroller 
shall receive further written notice from the Participant 
so to withhold, or unless and until the Comptroller shall 
receive written notice from the Department that the Par- 
ticipant has failed to make the necessary deposit into the 
Sinking Fund, at the times and in the amounts necessary 
to maintain it. 

All payments on account of maturing principal and inter- 
est of the Bonds shall be made from the Sinking Fund 
by the State Treasurer upon warrants of the Comptroller 
as requested by the Department, but in no event shall the 
Department request a warrant disbursing from the monies 
withheld from the Participant and credited to the Sinking 
Fund an amount greater than the Participant's share of the 
next accruing liability on account of the Bonds at the time 
of disbursement. The Department shall keep accurate rec- 
ords of the total deposits and disbursements made into 
and from the Sinking Fund, and of the deposits and dis- 
bursements made on behalf of the Participant. 

The Participant's share of the total amount on deposit in 
the Sinking Fund shall at no time (except as above pro- 
vided and except for accumulated earnings) be greater 
than its share of the amount necessary to meet debt service 
on the Bonds, accruing in the then current and in the next 
succeeding fiscal year, nor less than its proportionate share 
of the amount necessary to meet debt service accruing in 
the next succeeding fiscal year. In the event deposits shall 
be continuously made from the date of issue of the Bonds, 
the authority to withhold hereby conferred on the Comp- 
troller shall terminate not later than the end of the fiscal 



•« 



452 ORDINANCES Old. Xo. 125 

year next preceding the fiscal year of the final serial ma- 
turity of the Bonds. 

The Department shall have the right, from time to time 
in its discretion, to invest any and all monies in the Sink- 
ing Fund in accordance with Section 22 of Article 95 of 
the Code, and to apply the Participant's proportionate 
share of earnings from the investments as follows : 

(a) if the required deposits in or credits to the Sink- 
ing Fund on behalf of the Participant shall have been con- 
tinuously made, the Department may apply such share 
from time to time to bond redemptions as provided in 
Section 4 below; but if no redemptions shall be effected 
the Department shall apply the share in reduction of the 
Participant's liability to the Sinking Fund for the fiscal 
year next preceding the fiscal year of the final maturity of 
the Bonds ; 

(b) if the Participant's share of the Sinking Fund 
shall at any time be less than the amounts required by 
Section 3 hereof, the Department shall apply the share of 
earnings in reduction of the Paiiicipant's accrued liability 
to the Sinking Fund and thereafter as in sub-paragraph 
(a) hereof. 

Unless the Participant shall have previously exercised its 
option under Section 4 hereof, the Participant shall be 
entitled to reimbursement of its proportionate share of any 
balance remaining in the Sinking Fund, allocable to the 
Bonds, after all of the Bonds, and the coupons attached 
thereto, shall have matured and been paid, or provision 
made for such payment. 

4. Redemption and Terminatioyi. If, in the issuance of 
the Bonds, the Department shall reserve the right to re- 
deem the Bonds in whole or in part at a price in excess 
of par, it shall not thereafter obligate or commit any funds 
of the Participant in the Sinking Fund or elsewhere, in the 
exercise of such right without the prior written consent 
of the Participant. However, the Participant may, in its 
discretion, terminate at any time its entire liability here- 
under and the withholding provided for in Section 3 hereof 
by serving written notice of termination of this Agree- 
ment upon the Department, accompanied by a certified or 



ORDINANCES 453 

bank cashier's check drawn to the order of Treasurer of 
the State of Marj^land in an amount determined by the 
Department to be equal to the Participant's share of the 
principal then due or to become due on the Bonds until the 
final maturity thereof, plus the Participant's share of the 
interest due or to become due on the Bonds until their 
respective maturities, less the sum of the Participant's share 
of the debt service reserve (including any increment 
thereon) accumulated in the Sinking Fund, and the Par- 
ticipant's share of funds held by the Treasurer for the pay- 
ment of bonds and coupons which are then due, but which 
have not, at the date of such termination, been presented 
for payment. The sum so tendered by the Participant shall 
be recorded on the books of the State Treasury Depart- 
ment as a separate account and shall be invested by the 
Treasurer in the same manner as is above provided for the 
investm.ent of monies in the Sinking Fund. On or before 
each semi-annual interest payment date, the Comptroller 
shall cause to be withdrawn from the separate account 
and credited to the Sinking Fund the Participant's share 
of the principal and interest due, and he shall also cause 
to be withdrawn from the separate account and paid to 
the Participant the accumulated earnings from the invest- 
ments in the separate account. Any balance in the account 
after the final withdrawal shall be paid to the Participant. 
If, after termination, the Department shall elect to redeem 
the Bonds in whole or in part, in accordance with the 
provisions thereof, the separate account may be charged 
with so much as may be necessary of the Participant's 
share of the redemption price paid. 

5. Other Covenants and Representations by Partici- 
pant. In consideration of the issuance by the Department 
of the Bonds and the distribution of the proceeds of the 
sale, the Participant further covenants and represents as 
follows : 

(a) except as provided in Section 3 above there are no 
liens upon, or pledges of, the Participant's share of High- 
way User Revenues allocated to, or held for the credit of 
the Participant under Section 38 A of Article 89B, prior or 
superior to the withholding for Sinking Fund purposes 
herein agreed to, which impair or interfere with the with- 
holdings ; 



454 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 125 

(b) the Participant will not pledge any such revenues 
nor create or permit the creation of any liens thereon 
prior, superior, or equal to the commitments made by it 
hereunder, and that it will not do or suffer to be done 
any act or thing which will impair or interfere with the 
security of the Bonds or which will impair or interfere 
with its ability or the ability of the Department, the Comp- 
troller and the Treasurer to perform in accordance with 
this Agreement; 

(c) the Participant, in each fiscal year, will levy ad 
valorem taxes upon all property within its jurisdiction sub- 
ject to assessment for taxation at such rates as will be 
sufficient for it to collect in tax revenue a minimum of one 
dollar per capita of population, and will certify its annual 
tax levy in each year to the Comptroller, it being the intent 
and purpose of this covenant to insure that the Participant 
will not impair its other covenants hereunder by failure 
to comply with the applicable provisions of Sections 33, 34 
and 38A of Article 89B ; 

(d) by the issuance of the Bonds by the Department 
on behalf of the Participant, no debt limit or referendum 
requirements will be exceeded or violated and the Par- 
ticipant's participation in such bond issue will be within 
any such limitation and will not require approval by its 
qualified voters ; 

(e) the net proceeds received by the Participant from 
the Bonds will be expended by or for the Participant as 
set forth in Section 211G-1 of Article 89B, and for no 
other purpose whatsoever. 

6. Agreement for Benefit of Bondholders. It is hereby 
agreed that the provisions of this Agreement shall and are 
intended to be for the benefit and security of the bona 
fide holders from time to time of the Bonds and coupons 
attached thereto and that the covenants herein contained 
shall be enforceable by the holders to the same extent as 
though they were parties hereto. 

7. Validity. It is hereby agreed that the parties hereto 
will take all action within their respective delegated pow- 
ers to assure the legal validity of this Agreement and of the 
Bonds and fhat, in the event further legislation by the 



ORDINANCES 455 

General Assembly of Maryland should at any time be 
deemed necessary to assure such validity, they will use their 
best efforts to obtain the passage of such legislation. 

8. Approval. This Agreement shall become effective 
when duly authorized and executed by both parties hereto. 

Approval by the Board of Public Works of the State of 
Maryland of the issue of the Bonds is necessary prior to 
the sale thereof. 

9. Effect Upon Prior Agreements. Nothing herein shall 
be construed to alter, modify or supersede any agreements 
pertaining to all prior series of County Highway Construc- 
tion Bonds, but the provisions hereof shall be cumulative 
to all prior agreements. 

10. Fiscal Officer. The Participant represents that the 
title of the fiscal officer authorized by law to receive and 
hold custody of all monies due and payable to the Par- 
ticipant under this Agreement is 

and any payments hereunder shall be deemed to have been 
made to the Participant, if made to the fiscal officer. 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF the parties hereto have set
